We appreciate your interest in Chem-Dry Simcoe County. First of all, we must point out that we are not a brand new company. No, in fact we have been in business since 1987. You would be familiar with our original name Barrie Chem-Dry, which was one of the very first Chem-Dry franchises in Canada. Recently, we underwent a brand refresh, therefore at the same time we decided to change our name to Chem-Dry Simcoe County in order to include all areas we service which, is all of Simcoe County not only Barrie. It’s the same owners with the same great service. Kevin & Laurie owned the business up until 2023 when Esmaeel then purchased the franchise and now runs the day-to-day operations.

We specialize in safe, non toxic, environmentally friendly cleaning for area rugs, upholstery, Pet Urine Removal, residential and commercial carpet cleaning. Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet cleaning company, offers a revolutionary carpet cleaning process that uses carbonation and ingredients copied from Mother Nature to make carpets fresh and clean again.

No job is completed until the customer is 100% satisfied with the job. This is the wow factor. If we can’t please the customer, then we don’t deserve them as a client. If a stain comes back so do we.

History of the Chem-Dry Brand

As a young man working his way through law school in the early 1970’s, Robert Harris was a carpet cleaner who was working for someone else. Unhappy with the performance of the cleaning products then available, he began looking for a better solution. His research stretched into years and years of studying the chemical properties of cleaning formulas and years of backbreaking experiments which required cleaning areas of dirty carpets with one formula and then another.

Eventually, he developed a revolutionary carbonated solution that not only cleaned beautifully, but was also safe and non-toxic. With the birth of Chem-Dry in 1977 came self-employment and success. The demand for his cleaning services mushroomed and soon friends and family clamored for his secret. From the first small group of franchises, the Chem-Dry network has grown to thousands of successful franchises around the world. As the Chem-Dry family increases, Robert Harris has seen his own success story repeated by many franchisees.

Now, after more than 45 years, Chem-Dry is ranked the #1 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Company in America by Entrepreneur Magazine, with more locations than any other business in the industry! Led by Brand President Ed Quinlan, Chem-Dry continues its mission today of being an innovation leader and helping provide cleaner and healthier homes and workplaces for people around the world.

Chem-Dry is also a member of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands, which includes other residential and commercial services franchise brands such as N-Hance Wood Refinishing, redbox+ Dumpsters, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, DUCTZ and HOODZ.
